Unformatted text preview: Answer: no, it will not be valid 2. A power plant uses a simple ideal Rankine cycle with steam as the working fluid to produce a net work of 2.1 MW per cycle . Steam enters the turbine at 10 MPa and 500 ° C and is cooled in the condenser at a pressure of 1400 kPa. The energy input to the pump is 23.6 kJ/kg of steam and the condenser produces saturated liquid water. (30 pts) Determine the mass flow rate of the steam and the thermal efficiency for this cycle. Answer:...
